Can I Add A New Spouse Or Dependent To My COBRA Coverage?

Is it possible to add a new spouse or dependent to my COBRA coverage?

Yes. A qualified insurance beneficiary has the same rights to add newly acquired dependents on the group health plan, just like if they were employed. If you get married, you may add COBRA coverage for the new spouse, if active employees on the same employer-sponsored insurance can do the same. Check with the plan administrator for time details. Family members may also be added or deleted during the open enrollment period.

Other Eligibility Requirements For COBRA Coverage

You are eligible for COBRA if your employer has 20 or more workers. You may elect COBRA continuation as long as you had been covered while you were employed.
